but Mighty: Stinger 24V UV-C Light System Ideal for
3-ton-or-smaller Commercial HVAC Units. This 18-Watt,
Externally Mounted UV Fixture is Designed to Kill Surface
Mold and Bacteria, Restore System Efficiency and Reduce
Maintenance on Hard-To-Access Equipment.
The Stinger UV-C fixture from UV Resources is designed to
efficiently destroy surface microbes and organic materials
that impede HVAC system efficiency, as well as contribute to
allergies, poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), and
airborne-transmitted disease. Because the low voltage
unit mounts from the exterior and requires no interior unit

Cambridge Engineering Announces New Ultra High Efficiency
Space Heater. Easy to Install Addition to the SA-Series,
the SA350, Benefits Commercial & Industrial HVAC Contractors
in 2013, the Cambridge SA-Series uses the same proven
technology as the larger ultra high efficiency Cambridge
S-Series, but is sized for efficient heating and ventilation
of smaller spaces. Randy Niederer, Director of Marketing for
Cambridge, noted, “the addition of the SA350 allows for
greater end-user flexibility in an ‘off-the-shelf’ heater
for spaces larger than the SA250 serves, but smaller than
those served by our S-Series.”
The apparent simplicity of
the SA-Series heaters hides the fact that they incorporate
several patented and proprietary technologies, to provide
legendary Cambridge dependability. As with other Cambridge
heaters, the stainless steel burners are supported with the
longest warranty in the industry (five full years), with all
other components warranted for two years.
Cambridge Engineering has produced a 5-minute video
explaining the features and benefits of the SA-Series, which

WESTINGHOUSE CONDENSING GAS/ELECTRIC PACKAGED UNIT NOW
AVAILABLE IN A ROOFTOP VERSION
95% AFUE R8HE released in a downflow configuration.
HVAC has expanded the R8HE gas/electric packaged system
model to include a downflow configuration. The R8HE is
the first condensing gas/electric packaged unit for
residential applications and offers unprecedented
heating efficiency – 95% AFUE.
When furnaces operate at such high levels of efficiency,
condensate forms. With a gas/electric packaged system
there is a fear that the condensate will freeze. The
R8HE addresses this problem by piping the condensate
into the building (in rooftop applications). This model
also offers efficient, 14-SEER cooling capabilities.
Additional features of
the R8HE include:
• Micro-Channel Coils: Provide resistance to corrosion.
• Copeland® Scroll Compressor: Provides efficient,
• SmartLite® Control Board: Extends the life of the
• Corrosion-Resistant Drain Pan and Embossed Bottom Pan:
Keep the blower compartment dry.
The quality of the Westinghouse R8HE gas/electric
packaged system is backed by an exceptional parts
warranty – a 10-Year Limited All-Parts Warranty and
Quality Pledge (product registration required). To find

OvalSox which ranges from 11 to 22-inches-high and 47 to
93-inches-wide, saves 13 to 27-inches of head room versus
round HVAC fabric and metal duct alternatives. There's no
air volume or air dispersion lost with OvalSox versus
conventional duct that hangs too low and obstructs
industrial overhead conveyors or high rising equipment.
OvalSox is also ideal for datacenters with high rising
security cages or low hung ceilings in offices and other
OvalSox retains an inflated
shape even during idle air handling periods with
patent-pending polyester ropes and supportive fiberglass
rods for structural integrity. Six 3/16-inch-diameter ropes
are sewn into the fabric interior at nine to 14-inch
increments, which also present an aesthetic pleated effect.
Additionally, 3/8-inch-diameter corrosion-proof white
fiberglass rods are attached via sewn-in clips atop the
fabric surface to accentuate an inflated appearance. OvalSox
is ceiling hung with two easily-installed rows of cable or
H-track suspension systems, that also help keep an inflated
shape with minimal sag.
OvalSox is superior to metal ductwork in that it offers a
variety of air dispersion options, such as air porous
fabric, linear vents, nozzles and orifices.
